on obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. and then he said he would bringlet unemployment rate down to 5.25 percent and we learned on friday 7.9 nine million jobs short of what he promised and unemployment. and unemployment today is higher than when barak obama took office and by the way, he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare. he did not. rather he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. the list goes on. and he said he would low are health prem yups by $2000. and instead went up $3000 a family. and average american family pays $2000 more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. and i mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues. he's not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with either the republican leader of the house and senate since july so he's made the divide wider. people wonder how is it he fell so short of what he promised? he never led. or worked across the aisle and never truly understood how jobs are

[no audio]. >> that's too bad. i was saying how well it was working while he was on the campaign bus. apologize for that technical glitch. we have team coverage of both campaigns coming up a little later on this hour. a live report from our chief white house correspondent ed henry traveling with president obama's campaign in the battleground state of new hampshire. that's coming up. >>> speaking of the weather, this is a fox extreme weather alert. hurricane sandy's path is looking more ominous by the hour as it barrels up the eastern seaboard. the monster storm is already battering the mid-atlantic states with punishing wind and rain. sandy is expected to collide with antarctic air blast as it reaches

economy issue number one, but the deficit and the debt. you hearted that. they do feel that it's a form of generational theft, but they have some real questions. this is a center right campus, and there were some obama supporters, but overall i think the edge was to romney, about the there's real questions both about the authenticity of his recentering in the general election after campaigning as a severe conservative. you heard that. also, real questions about the role that social issues and the religious right play in the republican party. some of them were very fiscally conservative is saying this doesn't fit me or my generation. it's a fascinating wide-ranging issue of students very engaged in that pivotal battleground state of virginia. >> where have you been? you've been in florida, north carolina. you're in virginia with ali velshi, and is that sort of the theme in talking to some of these voters, john, that, you know, really it's the economy that is clearly the biggest concern, the biggest issue as they're heading to the polls? >> absolutely. the economy is the biggest issue. yo
result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is wha
distasteful aspect to it. not just about trimming the budget and getting your arms around the deficit, it's about the world -- >> that's exactly the kind of things voters should know. the real way to get them to know it is through these ads. that's what reaches them. that's why they raise that money. >> while lawrence is had hitting on something important because this happens with other -- >> that's what i do. no. >> it's barometric -- >> i'm here to bring the importance. >> the gold nugget of the news cycle. >> but it is so true, that we get this lecture every time something terrible happens. we got it in on gun control when we looked at gun tragedies which is an issue, by the way, where both nominees i think are fairly poor on the policy. but even still, even though it was a bipartisan neglect of gun control this narrative we can't talk about this. i think it's the opposite. with dignity you can still discuss the policy implications. >> can i just quickly say for the rest of the campaign, you don't have to listen to me when i make a prediction, i said i think romney has to keep campaign
in their deficit. i think that is terrible because that is one thing that people rely on is the federal government at a time like there. there is a catastrophe for a lot of people. you have a lot of people that have lost everything and they need help. but then you have the republican side that has really denigrated people who need help. they are always talking about people on food stamps, or people taking welfare and denigrating those people. and then you have a lot of callers that call in talking about this person is taking it from us or they should not have it. and you have a lot of people like people that are affected by there storm that are going to need help and i don't know if the federal government is going to be able to come together soon enough to be able to help these people quickly. congress is out and they didn't even do anything about the promise for the drought. so, i think that they just don't care. host: what about privatize iinge response to disaster to make sure that politics and partisan bick bickering doesn't stop or reduce money for responding to disasters? caller: if they are
and dealing with the debt and the deficit and i think days democrats spend on this issue have helped them with some voters for sure, and maybe they felt they were doing the right thing morally, but i am not sure it helped them as best it could have to achieve their ultimate goal which is winning the election by talking about the future. >> rose: so in many ways, i saw something that chris rock had said actually in playbook today, which was interesting he said here is a guy who did this, this, and this, and yet everybody tells him not to run on his record. and you talk about osama bin laden and he talked about gm and all of those kind of things yet people are saying don't run on the record, if it was a referendum on his record he will lose. >> well, i think the president talks about all of the things chris rock tweeted about in the convention, and in the campaigns communications, elections are about the future, not about the past and i think the most signicant poll number in the last two weeks, i don't think you and i have discussed this is wall street journal, nb. c poll that asked do you
better in terms of people who were more confident about handling the economy and the deficit which are the one and two areas of concern among likely voters. now, that's pretty interesting that the person who has the lead in those things is behind in the polls. and it shows i think the big problem for romney now is where will a new gust of momentum come from. he needs one. there's a jobs report on friday. that could conceivably be it. what if it's not. and now you have a kind of desperate lob grenade, try to find something that connects because the president -- >> peanut butter give. >> the president gets to engage on the campaign. he gets to be doing his job, to be a very serious person, going to see the damage in new jersey, seeing what he can do. it really is a big problem for romney right now. >> initially nothing for romney to do himself. i mean nobody cares what mitt romney thinks about the storm recovery in new jersey. it's very challenging position for him. >> what do we think of the new jeep ad up, which is airing in ohio and trying to undermine the president's credibility
to -- essentially, you've got to cut discretionary sending, if you're not going to add to the deficit, by a draconian level. you've got to cut it by like 40%, including fema. so, it's impossible to square what we -- again, what we know of his budget plan, since he won't lay them out in detail, and this new statement that, oh, well, of course i'm going to fully fund fema. well, gee, what's he going to say today. of course he loves fema now. but he didn't love it when they were coming up with a budget plan. >> and to eugene's point, if mitt romney thinks he might get some solace from ryan, there's the paul ryan budget, which also slashes any amount, what is it, $23 million from the budget from fema? i mean, again, their actual plans would eviscerate provisions for the kind of plastic surge emergency that this nation is facing today. >> and very shortly, we're going to be discussing whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again. and debt ceilings get pushed out by these kinds of disasters. you know, the new york subway has to be cleared out. the new york subway is not going to pay for t
trying to help with the deficit, and then john boehner, and they turn around and stop that. they stopped the transportation bill. he has tried time and time again with norquist and all these pledges that they made. that tea party would not work with president obama. i hope when he is reelected, he will not be up for reelection again and they will not be able to work with him. host: here are some more tweets -- a couple of e-mails -- that is mike from california. nancy from texas says -- front page of "the financial times" has the picture that a lot of folks have in their papers this morning. al in indiana on are democrats' line, good morning. caller: good morning. i believe that you can add to that question and put on a few more words. you look at who the president had to reach across the aisle to. i go back to one of president obama's addresses to congress when congressman wilson from california shouted out in front of a live audience on tv, "you lie." i think that is indicative of where this republican party is. the entire country is being held hostage because of the republican party's
a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of rules than the rest of us. and result of this top-down economics was falling incomes, record deficits, s
's at stake in this election. now, change in the future where we reduce our deficit that's balanced and responsible. i signed a trillion dollars worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work. if we're serious about the deficit, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense
